Baby was found as a cygnet hanging from a bridge after being caught up in a left-behind fishing line. After his leg was reattached, attempts to reunite with his family didn't work, so he came to us.
The RI wildlife clinic often gets saddled with domestic animals that people have found lost out in the wild. The clinic can't keep them because they only work with wild animals, so they ask us to step in to help out. We let these sweet animals live out their lives with us. Tangie is a Golden Pheasant and he is shy but sweet. Sighting him outside making his cute noises is always a treat for us.
BunBun is a domestic Rex rabbit that was dumped outside of a hotel, likely by people that got him for Easter then decided it wasn't a good idea. Although the kitchen staff was feeding him, they were worried about his surviving the winter. They brought it to the attention of one of our board members and he now lives here. Since we didn't have a designated bunny house, he has learned to 'play nice' with the peacocks so they agreed to share their home.

Louie was dumped at a pond and a man was feeding him every day on his way to work. Not realizing how unique Muscovies are, he thought his lack of flying meant his wings were broken, and his "hissy" voice meant he was sick. Turns out Louie was just a muscovy being a muscovy (they don't quack and they are lazy fliers). But our ED did realize that his wings had been clipped before he was dumped, and that could have been a death sentence for him out in the wild. Louie's favorite thing to do is to follow around our green thumb supervisor. And he is also the screen saver on her phone. Quite the love affair.
Lorelei is our new favorite duck. She was found in New York City with her wings tied with ribbons and she couldn't fly. Who would do that? This shy and super sweet girl is now safe with us and learning to explore without fear. And she might be sweet on Trooper.
Sandy and all her "sisters" (below) came to us from a big group of 12 hens that were living in muddy conditions, several with overgrown nails and foot issues. With no rooster around, Sandy was top of the pecking order, but she definitely lets Red do his job.
Chuki was found in NYC on a Main Street and it is amazing she survived without being hit by a car. She ultimately made her way to us and has been getting to know Beaty and Coppo. Chuki likes hiding so we make sure she has secret nesting box places.
Brooklyn (fka Parti) was found outside and weak. A caring young lady took her in and brought her back to health. But not everyone can keep a partridge so she was referred to us and Brooklyn came her for her forever home. Since she was around so many people, she is shy around the other partridges, but she'll learn to be a partridge soon, we're sure.
Lacy is a gentle giant. We'd tell you how we came up with the name, Lacy, but even if we tried to explain it, it might not make sense, so let's just go with it. He's our cool dude who loves to hang out right behind the ED's back door with his buddy, Louie.
Celina came to us from an over-crowded and failing alpaca business with no grass or space to move. She and three others were lucky enough to come to us to have plenty of grass and room to roam.
We haven't had a Chukar partridge in a while and we are so happy to have another with his cute sounds and noises. This sweetie was released for fall hunting, but ended up in someone's yard. He wouldn't survive the winter since they are not native, so now he's here. Beaty (fka Beatrice) only costs about $10 a month to feed him special millet and sunflower.
